August 25th 1944 - Allies liberate Paris


August 25th 1944: After bitter fighting between the Resistance and the German occupying power, Paris is liberated by the Allies. For the residents it was a historic day. While members of the 2nd French Armored Division and the 4th U.S. Infantry Division occupied the center, the German commander General Dietrich von Choltitz surrendered and, defying a destruction order given by Hitler, handed over Paris almost intact. At noon, the tricolor was already flying on the Eiffel-Tower, four-years of foreign rule were over.
